Not many anime have canines as main characters. And perhaps this is a good thing; Most people can relate to humans much better than animals.

and that is because there were those five VHS-cassettes to blame. In my country (Finland) the most brutal and bloody scenes were censored (like the decapitation) and the anime was put together so that one episode lasted about hour and a half. I am not sure is this anime or manga very popular elsewhere but with the young finns this anime adaptation has a special place ...
